Five reasons to cruise the Mediterranean
Five reasons to cruise the Mediterranean on board MSC Meraviglia this Festive Season
The Western Mediterranean is beautiful all year round. This year, why not spend the festive season aboard a seven-night cruise with MSC Meraviglia.
Here are five reasons why MSC Meraviglia is the place to be:
1. MSC Meraviglia: the ship for all seasons
MSC Meraviglia is known as the ship for all seasons, and with good reason. Its unique features and entertainment offered on board mean that, even if there’s a chill in the air, there is plenty to do indoors. During the summer months, MSC Meraviglia’s open air pools are ideal for basking in the sunshine, while during winter months, guests can freely enjoy the covered indoor pool, the MSC Aurea Spa, a luxurious Balinese spa offering a range of relaxation treatments to melt those troubles away. Treat yourself or your partner to beauty or nail treatments and follow this pampering up with a meal at one of the ship’s stylish speciality restaurants. Hit the ship’s state-of-the-art gym or catch live games, quizzes and talent contests in the TV Studio on a winter’s evening.
2. Experience Cirque du Soleil at Sea
Take the opportunity to experience an original, spectacular Cirque du Soleil at Sea performance. The shows by the world leader in live artistic entertainment is a true marvel, and hosted in the high-tech Carousel Lounge, where guests can also enjoy a meal/cocktail with the performance.
3. Catch some winter sunshine
Cruising in the winter months does not mean cruising in the rain. On the contrary, MSC Meraviglia’s winter itinerary will take you as far south as Malta, so you can top up on some much needed Vitamin D, and return home looking bronzed enough to make all your friends and colleagues envious. With temperatures some days rising to as high as 20 degrees Celsius in southern Italy in the winter months, make sure you some lighter clothes!
4. Take in Europe’s greatest cities without the summer rush
If you’ve ever visited Rome or Barcelona during the summer months, you will perhaps have experienced the hassle of endless queues, fully booked restaurants and crowded pavements. Visiting such historic, beautiful and unique cities during the off-peak season is a whole new experience. Hop off the ship in Civitavecchia and visit the world-famous Colosseum and Trevi fountain, without having to battle your way through throngs of tourists. In Barcelona, stroll around the renowned gothic quarter and stop for some authentic cuisine in a cosy tapas bar.
5. Celebrate the holidays in style
As much as we all love a traditional Christmas day, this year, you could be exploring an exciting new city whilst also enjoying special onboard holiday season celebrations. Don’t miss the opportunity to take in some truly wonderful Christmas markets along the way. See in the New Year by partying the night away with your friends and family in one of MSC Meraviglia’s glamorous evening bars.Source: MSC
